Navigating life!

We all know LIFE is a four letter word. :) I know Captain Obvious here.

Why do I bring that up?

Well I have visions of grandeur when it comes to my website, online sales, and the amount of people that I believe should be frequenting it - thus buying stuff.  Bubble bursted... It happens, and Max and I are learning what is good, bad, and ugly.

I will say, I don't know about you all, but I am trying to juggle a lot of things. How did I do it all with the commute I had.  I am an engineer by day, and a serial crafter by night. When I am not being a mom, daughter, sister, and wife. Not specifically in that order. As many of you know with the current pandemic, it has challenged everyone to think and work out of the box. 

I miss talking to people face to face. I am not a people person, but I miss the few close friends I do have, as most of you do as well. Many people have been terribly ill, passed away, or been worked past the point of exhaustion (thank you front line workers).  I just wanted to say this. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I know it feels like it at times, but you are not. I am thankful to have technology, instead of when the lockdown for the polo virus went. The kids had to listen to school on radios, if they were lucky enough to have a radio.

I say a prayer for those families that have been severely impacted by the pandemic, I pray you get some relief, and grace. We are going to make it through this, and whatever else comes our way. Our spirits can not be stamped out. 

The term I lived with for 22 years, and still live by - it is Semper Fidelis. It means always faithful. It doesn't matter if it is to the United States Marine Corps, my faith, to my family, and anything else that comes to mind, I will always be here to lend a hand or a shoulder. Stay faithful to yourself and the ones you love, it helps during these tough times.
